Quoting George Whitefield #1

From "The Seed of the Woman, and the Seed of the Serpent" (Genesis 3:15)
The fall of man is written in too legible characters not to be understood: Those that deny it, by their denying, prove it. ~ George Whitefield
Before God gave a revelation of his Son, man was a riddle to himself. And Moses unfolds more, in this one chapter (out of which the text is taken) than all mankind could have been capable of finding out of themselves, though they had studied to all eternity. ~ George Whitefield
How many does Satan lead captive at his will, by flattering them, that they shall not surely die; that hell torments will not be eternal; that God is all mercy; that he therefore will not punish a few years sin with an eternity of misery? But Eve found God as good as his word; and so will all they who go on in sin, under a false hope that they shall not surely die. ~ George Whitefield
We labor to cover our nakedness with the fig-leaves of our own righteousness: We hide ourselves from God as long as we can, and will not come, and never should come, did not the Father prevent, draw, and sweetly constrain us by his grace, as he here prevented Adam. ~ George Whitefield
This pride we are all subject to by the fall; and, till our hearts are broken, and made contrite by the spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ, we shall be always charging God foolishly. ~ George Whitefield
Secure sinners must hear the thunderings of mount Sinai, before we bring them to mount Zion. ~ George Whitefield
